Serious problem on Code128 AutoEncode

I'm in a trouble with generation Code128 barcodes with AutoEncode,
generated code is wrong, some devices are not reading.
Check it from other sites they are totally different, it's not about checksum or type A,B,C

For example,
This is the expected output

This is the unexpected output and ReportBuilder gives same

Can you please help


  • Which version of ReportBuilder and Delphi are you using? In my testing with your data, the Code128 barcode is generating and scanning correctly (and is identical to your expected output).

  • Hi Niko, thanks for your interest.

    I'm using v.19.1 in Tokyo and tried also v.22 in Alexandria.
    There are no worries about generating Code128, it is true and scanned result is OK.

    However, some of our devices those are laboratuary analyzers scanning tubes with barcodes.
    Most of them works OK with the RB Barcode, some of them not.

    Can you please check the link that I shared,

    İf I use first site barcode (the barcode bars are different as you see), there is no problem on reading for all devices.


  • Hi Sertan,

    Please consider upgrading to the latest version of ReportBuilder and re-testing. I am unclear about what is causing the problem. ReportBuilder does not change the barcode output without input from the user/developer. I will need more information about the incorrect barcodes and how they are created to understand what is happening.

    Your images show completely different barcodes, this would imply that the data has been changed.
